International migration flows have changed in the last decades. The distinction between voluntary and forced migrants is insufficient to understand the diversity of migratory flows. Presently, the border between both concepts is porous and there are big grey areas such as mixed migration. Within this framework about migration, changes regarding refugees are also important. New causes and dangers have appeared to explain why humans leave their homes and, above all, new typologies of refugees who cannot adapt to the International Migration Law have emerged.
